Articulating your brilliance can be one of the most challenging things you’ll encounter on the adventure of a Conscious Business. And on the beginning of any adventure it’s always a good idea to know where you’re headed.
Your business foundation is structured upon on your…
WHY, WHAT and WHO
Why are you moved to create a business, what propels you into movement regardless of external approval and affirmation? What is the singular service that you are brilliantly designed to deliver and that solves an urgent and painful problem? Who are you here to serve in a way that no one else can?
In order to embody your Why, What and Who brilliantly, and uniquely, you’ve got to be connected to that inner spark that fuels your Being. That spark is your Authentic Essence and though it can be experienced energetically in its free flowing form it powers up your world when you can articulate how it shows up as you are in service to others.
One of the reasons that it can be so difficult to tap into the powerhouse that fuels your essence, is that you’re scratching the surface or you’re playing it safe. Often you dismiss the things that come naturally and easily to you, and have the most impact and value. Ironically, it is this very thing – who you ARE essence-tually – that will create breakthroughs and transformation for others. Most of the time this brilliance excavation can best be facilitated by a trusted partner or in a vibrantly alive community.
Let’s explore the places where you might have noticed the reflection of your Authentic Essence. This is not a linear exploration. Trust the process!
First, listen to the Conscious Business Byte below, then…
1. Jot down your top three talents. These are things you’re SO good at AND love, that you can do them in your sleep. It should also feel like a calling, something that you can’t resist offering when someone needs it.
2. Ask friends for feedback. I know this will be a stretch for some of you, but this alone can create huge a-ha’s and inner shifts! Be brave, be bold and email 5-10 friends. Ask them to make two lists: (1) The Top 5 Things They LOVE About You and (2) The Top 3 Things You’re Brilliant At. If they give you more than that awesome, icing on the cake!
3. Partner up with a Power Pal. Head on over to The Conscious Business Network membership site and find yourself a Power Pal. Take turns sharing with each other the results of all three lists, until you distill the essential qualities of your brilliance.
4. Share your Top 3 qualities on the What’s Your Brilliance discussion thread!
